Brahmagupta's Brahmasphutasiddhanta (Volume 4 In Sanskrit) Correctly Established Doctrine of Brahma Chapters 17-24 Written c. 628, in Sanskrit, it contains ideas including a good understanding of the mathematical role of zero, rules for manipulating both negative and positive numbers. It also contains a method for computing square roots, methods of solving linear and some quadratic equations, and rules for summing series, Brahmagupta's identity, and the Brahmagupta’s theorem. The book was written completely in verse. ============== I am seeking verses 18.30-35 and hope a kind person will type the Sanskrit for me and translate it ACCURATELY into English. Thank you.
